Wandering Through a Buffet of Thoughts
We’ve all been to a buffet at one time or another. Grab the tray, pull out the utensils and start cruising along, eyeballing the offerings.
“Don’t like that.”
“That looks good, but those little things look like onions.”
“What the heck is THAT?”
“Oh boy. My favorite!”
“Hmm, I don’t know what that is, but it looks good.”
And on down the line, filling your plate with food that you find delectable.
Here’s another scenario: You’re at a buffet and you put anything and everything on your plate whether you like it or not. When you get to the table, you discover that most, if not, all the food on your plate are dishes you do NOT like – for me it would be anything with onions.
When we’re at a buffet we tend to pick out what we like, and we might try something new, that seems appealing and we’re feeling adventurous. But, for the most part, we take what we like and pass up what we don’t like.
The thoughts we think and the thoughts we could think are like a buffet. We could be sloppy and take in any thought, even the ones that trigger unpleasant feelings in us; basically, running on autopilot and unfocused.
Or, we could be deliberate thinkers, choosing our thoughts based on how good they make us feel, just as we choose foods that taste good and evoke pleasant feelings in us.
Now, just what if there was a way to be a pickier thinker, a more focused and deliberate thinker? What if there was a way to let go of an old negative thinking habit and develop a new, beneficial thinking habit?
Well, there is a way. A way to be more discerning about thoughts, so that more and more often delicious, feel good thoughts are always on the menu.

Give your emotional taste buds a treat and be one of the few who allow themselves to dine at the buffet of better feeling thoughts.
